  • Summary: Great printer. Still going strong in an office environment. Can't beat Canon for printers.

Uses too much ink.

John, Amazon
29 August 2014
  • Summary: Some good points - but outweighed by the fact it uses so much ink and more frustratingly won't print if one of the (colour) catridges is empty...even if you want to print in black and white. Software not user friendly either.

Take out a mortgage to afford the Ink

Martin Hamilton, Amazon
7 August 2014
  • Summary: This has just died after 3 years - it won't scan and it's dropped to 5 minutes to print a page, so I've scrapped it.. While it did everything I asked of it, the 2-star rating is due to ink consumption. The tiny cartridges (which I buy from Refresh Cartridges) seem incredibly cheap, but for the sort of occasional printing I do - a couple of pages a day - they hardly last any time at all due to the ink charging and cleaning cycles.

No Decent Service

Phine, Amazon
17 June 2014
  • Summary: Purchased this printer in 2012. When I last use the printer it was fine. Then went to use it recently and an error message of 6500 is all I am getting. Checked the printer and can find nothing loose inside. This error message means the printer is not even connecting, so I cannot even see if a driver change will assist and to make matters worse at first I could not find my printer on the Cannon site in order to request assistance.

CANON Never again !!!!!

P.D.TZEREFOS, Amazon
26 April 2014
  • Summary: Could I possibly put 0 stars.... This is the second consecutive canon Pixma that has let me down. I shoud have known better. Where to start, let's see.... Scanning: the feeder works 2 times out of 10. one has to feed paper one sheet at at time (what's the point of a feeder then?). Most of the times it jams... useless Printing: first page takes ages to apear. Photo printing is nothing to get exhited about, I guess it is OK.... but wait.... the feeder again...

  • Summary: Arrived two day before it was expected, well packaged and easy to set up. This takes the place of a cheaper PIXMA returned as unsuitable for intended purpose..

Good, almost great.

A. Bhaskar, Amazon
11 March 2014
  • Summary: There isn't much to love, or disagree about this printer. We've had it for a while now, and it's worked as advertised. The only bit that I'd like improved is support for cloud printing so I can print from anywhere, including my phone and tablets. Also, Canon could do a lot of things to improve its own printing app for Android. It's horrendous. The printer & scanner itself, pretty reliable for the kind of moderate use we put it through.

What a bargain

ANNA M. BAJERSKA, Amazon
26 October 2013
  • Summary: This was an amazing bargain as I paid less than half the price they are selling in shops and what an amazing product. You don't have to do anything as it does EVERYTHING for you and even tells you step by step what you need to do. I love love love this amazing product. I have never use the scanner or fax but the copying and printing is fantastic!

Built to run for 2 to 3 years then worthless

Dave Driver, Amazon
28 September 2013
  • Summary: The printer was only lightly used but after exactly 2 years of operation it conked out with B200 error which is widely reported on the internet. The error in my case was fatal as I am not willing to put out repair costs to the same value as a new printer. I will never buy another Canon product and it is policies like theirs which are helping to fill the landfill sites with rubbish.

Ink disappears on startup

MR J SINGH, Amazon
29 July 2013
  • Summary: I've had it for about a year. Firstly it starts up slow, making funny noises and then you find out that a large portion of your (extremely expensive) ink has disappeared down a black hole. I only use it rarely and this loss of ink is terrible,particularly considering how small the ink cartridges are to begin with. Maybe If I left it on all the time it might not lose as much ink, but I'm not going to do that. The scanner and photocopy work ok.
